Folkscanomy: Agriculture

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

This collection is Folkscanomy Agriculture.

USDA Agriculture handbook no. 54. "This bulletin contains descriptions of more than 400 cheeses, arranged in alphabetical order (pp. 4-143). Many cheeses are named for the town or community in which they are made, or for a landmark of the community. Hence, many cheeses with different local names are practically the same in their characteristics. On the other hand, several different kinds are known by the same local name. More than 800 names are indexed (pp. 145-151)."
